- Full Description
Tanith Lee wrote this classic novel in 1979...beautiful, tragic, sensual, a triumphant love story of the future. Trina Robbins discovered it, and adapted it in 1985 into one of the earliest graphic novels of its kind. This new full color version presents sixteen-year-old Jane. She and her friends are the idle, pampered children of the privileged class, living in luxury on a future Earth remade by natural disaster. Then her life is changed forever by a chance encounter with a robot minstrel with auburn hair and silver skin, whose songs ignite in her a desperate and inexplicable passion.
Jane is certain that Silver is more than just a machine built to please. And she will give up everything to prove it. So she escapes into the city's violent, decaying slums to embrace a love bordering on madness. Or is it something more? Has Jane glimpsed in Silver something no one else has dared to see—not even the robot or his creators? A love so perfect it must be destroyed, for no human could ever compete?
This special new edition includes all kinds of bonus features: a new Foreword by Gail Simone and a new Afterword by Colleen Doran; new introduction by Trina; a new essay by Storm Constantine; bios of Robbins, Lee, Doran, Constantine and Simone; Tanith writes about the story back in 2009; and finally, more history about the first publication of this novel, a work ahead of its time.
